DUBAI: Egypt’s foreign ministry has said that bombing targeting displaced people in south Gaza has “a clear objective”, and that is to force the enclave’s residents to leave.

“Egypt has clearly declared its utter rejection of any enforced displacement attempt of Palestinians,” the ministry’s spokesman posted on the social media messaging platform X.

He also said Egypt has drafted a new resolution to be submitted to the Security Council by the Arab and Islamic groups to deal with existing obstacles and imbalances of humanitarian aid entry to Gaza.
